2019 iPhones’ big feature will be an extra camera lens

2019 iPhones’ big feature will be an extra camera lens

The high-end model will include a triple rear camera for super sharp photos whilst others will have double cameras, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. And now that CES is over we have a report about this year's new iPhone series that seems to confirm the earlier leak, providing additional details about the iPhone XS and XR successors.

The problem is that even if Apple now wanted to pivot away from releasing an iPhone with an LCD display, it's likely too late in the planning cycle for Apple to make any significant changes. While the highest price iPhone model is expected to sport a triple-camera setup at the back, the other two less-expensive iPhone models will get a dual-camera setup at the back, people familiar with the matter told the publication. The current XR sports a single lens camera, and is backed by AI similarly to Google's Pixel cameras to produce shots which resemble that of the dual lens XS and XS Max.

In December, Apple started a trade-in promotion allowing consumers to trade their Android phones (including those from Huawei and Xiaomi) for credits toward buying new iPhones, Yahoo reported.

Looking ahead to 2020, Apple apparently might ditch LCD altogether.

Apple's purported focus on cameras shows that it wants to keep the iPhone competitive with rival smartphones that heavily emphasize the importance of photography chops.

Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook recently collected his biggest-ever annual bonus for fiscal 2018 after his company posted record revenue and profit, and a market value that temporarily eclipsed $1 trillion. Mr Cook also acknowledged that consumers in other markets are not buying as numerous latest iPhones. It isn't clear whether Apple is planning to introduce any major features for the iPhone XR successor, or whether it will just be all about spec upgrades.
